OK, so before everybody starts in on me- I know this sounds crazy and no i didnt get a picture.
So, I happen to live in Lexington Kentucky, the horse capital of the world. About a year and half ago, my girlfriend's family and I were driving out
deep into the country on a shortcut route between Richmond, KY and Harrodsburg, KY. Very deep farm land, mostly forests and hills, with the
occasional horse farm. Not the fancy horse farms, bc this is back woods- the people who had horses didnt have thoroughbreds.
So- we were traveling down this very windy road, the kind of road where you cant see around the turn ahead of you. My girlfriend was driving, and i
was gazing out of the backseat window at the country side. We had not seen a farm or house for miles.
When all of assudden, a gorgeous magnificant white thoroughbred came galloping around the hills and began for a moment galloping side by side with the
car about 20 feet from me. It was pristine- handsomely groomed- perfect muscle tone- it looked like a picture. I wondered why it was here in the
middle of nowhere. I cast it off to being a normal horse, when I looked closer and saw a beard on the horse. Literally- about a foot long hanging
from its chin. I took a doubletake and then before we knew it it was gone. We took a turn and it was gone from sight. I said to my girlfriend- uh i
think i just saw a unicorn-- she nor did anyone else in the car see it. I insisted we drive back and check, so we did and there was no horse in
Why I think it was a unicorn if i didnt see its horn.
The brain works in strange ways. When your not expecting to see something you dont see it. History says that when the early native americans first
saw european ships arriving, that they could only see the water moving around the ships because their brain couldnt process a ship- a modern marvel
they had never seen before.
Because I only saw the horse for what seemed like a split second- it is possible that my mind saw the beard but did not see the horn because it was
So, in the end- was it a unicorn sighting? Technically no- but it was a beautiful thoroughbred with a foot long beard, and ive never heard of a horse
with a beard other than a unicorn.
My friend, who has lived in Kentucky her entire life, said that she has seen these unicorns, horses before. Sometimes they have horns, sometimes
they dont. But they are the horses of the land, the spirit of the land. And they show themselves when they know someone is open and watching.
I consider myself lucky to have seen it.
The horse looked just like this unicorn picture, only the beard was longer and it didn't have a horn (that i saw)
